Lemonade in Düsseldorf

The adventures I was talking in the previous post were waiting me in Düsseldorf. I just came back from my trip and I wanted to write down the experience I had.

First challenge: find the train station in the airport. We went to the information desk to ask for directions and the man told us to take the elevator to -1 and from there follow the signs. Guess what.. At -1 was the parking station without any obvious signs to a train station. Good.. Let's go to -2, maybe it's there. Surprise.. No signs, only parking station. Let's try to 0 (we were at 1st floor at the beginning). Finally we saw clear signs to the train station, which was at -1.
Second challenge: train tickets. I've done some research before our arrival and a ticket for 4 trips was the best combination for us. We were very sure we selected the tickets for adults, instead we ended up with tickets for children.
We used twice those tickets on the idea that 4 tickets for children = 2 for adults.
Before moving to the next subject, we travelled twice without tickets. I hope I won't receive at home a ticket for travelling without paying.
The purpose of this trip was to attend Beyonce's concert. It was amazing. I can't believe we really did this. Dear A I'm so glad we went together. I can't think of another person with whom to enjoy this experience.

The show was spectacular. The audience could have been better. I guess it's in their nature to be colder, not so expressive, to hide their real feelings.
About the city and the people, I found them cold, silent, formal. At least the weather was ok, sunny and little bit windy, perfect compared with what's home. 

I don't know if I will go back in Düsseldorf, there is not so much to see.
But who knows what future has prepared for me. 

Küsse!

Stories from Hamburg

Lately I've heard a lot about Hamburg, how awesome it is and I was curious to see it with my own eyes. Being in Berlin these days, was the perfect moment to do it. I bought train tickets and here I am in a train going to Hamburg. With my book, enjoying a 2h train ride  The weather was not favorable to me, but I still have all my fingers. I must say, the rainy day enhanced the colors of this city. I was not kidding about the cold It took me a few time to get used with the temperature, but after that I forgot it was cold. I had set in mind to see the canals. I came here for that. I read some articles about this and I was impressed. It's said that it has more than Venice or Amsterdam. From what I've seen, it looks a lot with both of them, but on a different scale. If in the two cities mentioned the buildings are not so tall, here we find massive constructions. #wanderlust #urbanphotography #enthusiastictraveller A post shared by Madalina G. (@gmadalina92)

Kasteel de Haar - a luxurious castle

During the rainy days and with the current restrictions, my only consolation is writing about magical places I discovered in the past months in Netherlands. The subject of this post is De Haar Castle, a place rich in stories!  The joy of exploring this flamboyant castle De Haar is the largest castle in the Netherlands, once the private residence of the Van Zuylen family, whose descendants still stay there yearly. In the last century, the castle also frequently hosted members of the international jet set with their lavish lifestyle; from Coco Chanel to Roger Moore, they too left their mark on the sumptuous rooms of the most opulent spot in Utrecht. I visited the castle a couple of weeks ago, together with my dearest friend, Ioana, and it was a lovely Sunday, even with some warm sunshine!  This year I bought  Museumkaart  which allows free entrance to about 400 museums in the Netherlands, De Haar Castle included! Despite the months when the museums were/are closed, I got to use it a coup

Zaanse Schans - Dutch history on the river Zaan

 It's been a while since my last post in March. Despite the pandemic, in May - June, when the restrictions loosened up, I started to go on short trips in Netherlands to explore the nature and iconic places, such Zaanse Schans. You may wonder why I waited so long to visit this place. Well, I've never been a big fan of crowded places, and according to the statistics, Zaanse Schans attracts nearly a million visitors per year and it's one of the Netherlands' best loved attractions. I seized the moment and when I visited the place it was almost deserted, for my own content. Additionally, I did a return journey with my bicycle! From Amsterdam Oost (where I live), is approximatively 20km one way. The route includes a ferry. I took the ferry from Veer Hempontplein because I stopped in West to surprise my friend with a delicious cheesecake that I baked the night before. And also this route went through Zaandam! I had to stop to capture this Who let the ducks out! This is not the
